An Inside Look At An Opulent Clinton Foundation ‘Site Visit.’ by Richard Pollock
Excerpt: Former President Bill Clinton and 11 wealthy Clinton Foundation donors generously served meals to 250 underprivileged children July 16, 2014, at the Akshaya Patra kitchen in Jaipur, India, as TV cameras recorded the moment. Clinton’s group then quietly retired to Oberoi Rajvilas, a five-star “royal resort” where the former chief executive booked into Kohinoor Villa, an 11,377-square foot luxurious villa with a 60-foot swimming pool, according to the hotel’s management. The same villa today goes for $13,900 per night, not including the 21 percent government tax. Clinton’s villa was five times as big as the average American home, according to U.S. Census Bureau data.
Back in the bad old days there were kinds, emperors, etc, and then the whole case of Princes, Barons, Dukes, Counts, etc, various ranks of those of "noble blood". Who had, naturally, great privileges and lived lives of wonderful luxury compared to all the lesser beings, the mere merchants, artisans, shopkeepers, farmers, serfs, and assorted kinds of workers, and of course the despised beggars and poverty stricken. But those times have returned, clearly, and the New Nobility is with us, the multimillionaires and billionaires who live much better than any past king or emperor ever did. They even get to play the same kind of game that kings played, when the king would have his steward throw bread to the pitiful crowd to show his benevolence, after which he could go to a banquet and waste enough food to feed ten times the crowd that got the bits of bread. Read the great article below to see how this works now. I run a foundation too.... but when we throw a dinner for ourselves, we either cook the food together or go to a restaurant and split the check. After driving there in our own cars, and not deducting the expense of the trip either. What are we doing wrong? Oh yeah, maybe it's that sending every damn dime we can to the people the Foundation was set up to help. www.thevhf.org --Del
